One West Virginia candidate for U.S. Senate returned to town Tuesday morning.

Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito received a standing ovation at the Blennerhassett Hotel from dozens of local veterans, from World War II to Iraq and Afghanistan.

One veteran we spoke with says Capito is a more seasoned candidate than her opponent, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant.

Another talked to us about his experience as a patient at the VA hospital in Clarksburg.

"She's for the common people. She's for the working people. She's for the seniors, for the veterans. All these things are important," says Raymond Smith, a World War II veteran.

"They have treated me right. I've got no complaints whatsoever. They take care of me on a timely basis. I was there last week for a physical," says Jack Boley, who was treated at the Clarksburg VA hospital.

After the Blennerhassett, Congresswoman Capito traveled to Wheeling for another campaign stop.
